"outfront" -- taking a page from the chris christie playbook. it's been 552 days since this country lost its top credit rating. what are we doing to get it back? some good news from home depot on go. home depot said it's going to hire 80,000 seasonal workers for the spring. 10,000 more than last year. our fourth story, happy birthday, ethan. the child who was abducted from his school bus and held hostage for nearly

know about ashley judd? can she win? >> thing is a lot of candidates who can win. she is from kentucky. she obviously has broad national appeal, which would be nice to help her infuse kentucky with a lot of resources. but honestly, i think that there are many good candidates who can win. there is also a progressive attorney general named jack conway and some others. so we'll be watching. but i think it's very important for all progressives and democrats to take this very seriously right now and to make sure that we're constantly holding mitch mcconnell accountable back home. do. >> you think kentuckians get his obstruction? >> more and more they're finding out about it. and, again, we can't wait until the final eight weeks of the election to make sure that there is accountability back home. we need to make sure on every single issue, kentuckians are figuring out that mitch mcconnell is not advocating for their interest. and one other thing, as progressives in this gunfight, we need to make sure we have president obama's back. he has given us everything we asked for, a really bold plan.
